This offertory motet marks the first commission from Neil Page, the Director of Music at St Barnabas Cathedral, for the cathedral choir. The first performance of the piece took place alongside the first performance of Antony LeFleming’s Mass of St Barnabas during a Gala Concert in the cathedral on 31 January 2009. The text of the work is the Offertory for the Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time and the motet was recorded in 2011 for the I lift up my eyes album by the Schola Cantorum of St Barnabas Cathedral.
Bonum est confiteri Domino, et psallere nomini tuo, Altissime!
It is good to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing in honour of your Name, O Most High!
